Teen mistress addresses relationship, pol's Cold War fears in memoir
NY POST ^ | 02/05/2012 | C.R. Fagen

She always called him “Mr. President” — not Jack. He refused to kiss her on the lips when they made love. But Mimi Alford, a White House intern from New Jersey, was smitten nonetheless.

She was in the midst of an 18-month affair with the most powerful man in the world, sharing not only John F. Kennedy’s bed but also some of his darkest and most intimate moments.

In her explosive new tell-all, “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,” Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother and retired New York City church administrator, sets the record straight in searingly candid detail. The book, out Wednesday was bought by The Post at a Manhattan bookstore.

In the summer of 1962, Alford was a slender, golden-haired 19-year-old debutante whose finishing-school polish and blueblood connections had landed her a job in the White House press office

Ho-hum, another day, another JFK affair to be reported. Really classy of him to share her with his buddy, Dave Powers. I wonder if Newt has done similar things. Haven't heard of any affairs with any soon to-be-married teenagers on Newt's part, so, I guess he's not qualified for the office. Must be great to have all that power.

As putrid as this is, I think it’s always better to have a womanizer as POTUS than a HOMOPOTUS.

The news media were completely silent on the subject, but JFK was a womanizer extraordinaire. I have heard from people with family in the administration that he generally had at least two or three women a day. Obviously it must have kept him pretty busy.

Read the report, which seemed to be more about KFK. Just curious how a little unmasjed Newt bash came as a result.

I wonder why this woman just didn’t keep her mouth shut...does she really need the money?

Also it was interesting that he said - supposedly - that he’d rather his children were red than dead because just recently we heard that Jackie made the really strange comment that she wanted to die with JFK (by staying in the WH with her husband rather than going to a safe place in the event of a nuclear attack) and so did the children. Hard to imagine she actually said that!

This woman describes this as an affair?

Not so much...it was more a situation when JFK decided on the girl du jour and summoned her.

What I don’t understand is why a 69 year old grandmother would divulge this. Don’t tell me money...I can’t wrap my brain around that.

At some point in life, most people realize that their youthful indiscretions should be left in the past.Even though JFK took advantage of her youth, at some point she had to have thought that things weren’t right. I would hate to be her kids or grandkids.

Wasn’t a Newt bash(read my tagline). Added that comment to show amazement that some are concerned with Newt’s (alleged/factual)infidelities when JFK is enshrined in those same minds as some sort of Saint—of course, he was a ‘rat and crossed over the divide nearly 50 years ago. Ever heard the term, “double standard”? IOW, your comment is way off base.

Yes, I noted that, too. And, this from the man who “faced the Soviet menace/Kruschev down.” Doesn’t quite fit the stories we are fed about the illustrious JFK.

” Doesn’t quite fit the stories we are fed about the illustrious JFK.

LBJ and Hoover were able to lead the coup that killed JFK because most in powerful positions were aware that JFK was trash.

LBJ was going to jail for murder, his ticket out was Elm Street as he squashed that investigation per Barr McClellan, one of LBJ's lawyers.

Hoover of course had files on everybody. Hoover in many respects was the most powerful man on Earth and he was not going to give up his power if JFK was re-elected. Without Hoover, of course, the coup would have been easily exposed.

why a 69 year old grandmother would divulge this.

Money could be the reason. Maybe she is angry at her husband. There is at least one 'good' reason. Maybe more.

Imagine letting your children and grandchildren know that you provided oral sex to a co-worker and did it in front of someone.

How shameful. This grandmother who was a courtesean for a long gone womanizing president is giving painfully explicit details about her sexual affairs with him. Her family should be embarrassed and shamed. Jerry Springer for the Porter’s crowd. She must want the money.

Pretty much all the Kennedys, as far as I can see. Joe Kennedy, Sr., was a mobster, and over the years it seems to have run in the family. For several generations.

Drunken, womanizing, “I’m entitled” louts, just about all of them. JFK’s mother seems to have been a decent woman, and she managed to teach the brothers some manners, if not actually improve their behavior. So with the complicity of the media they got away with it.

Considering what she allowed Joe Sr. to do to her namesake, I gotta disagree. IMO, Eunice has made a career of doing penance for her parents' treatment of her sister.

True. Maybe I just should have left it that she taught them manners, how to behave as if they were just as good as those of the most select Bostonian birth, and not Chicago mobsters. And the press ate that up.

Now, of course, nobody is taught manners, so it’s less important whether you have any.
